Kenya's President Uhuru Kenyatta has called for an "extraordinary meeting" of his national security council at the end of this week over the rise of Covid-19 cases in the country.

State House spokesperson Kanze Dena said the meeting will review how well the containment measures are working.

President Kenyatta announced the reopening of the economy on 7 July after a series of restrictions were brought in to contain the spread of the virus.

Over the past two weeks, more than 7,000 cases and 83 deaths have been reported.

The country's total number of confirmed cases stands at 13,771 and 238 people have died.
